on the ad truthfulness or lack thereof. let me move you to hurricane sandy and something that karl rove, who as you know, was the architect of the bush campaign from the deputy white house chief of staff for george w. bush, and he said the washington post, "if you hadn't had the storm, there would have been more of a chance for the romney campaign to talk about the deficit, the debt, the economy. there was a stutter in the campaign. when you have attention drawn away to somewhere else, to something else, it is not to his -- meaning governor romney's -- advantage." do you think that hurricane sandy or superstorm sandy and the president's handling of it stopped mitt romney's momentum and helped the president? >> you know, i don't know. i can't judge that. i have been here in ohio watching on tv some of the scenes, including on your network yesterday of people who are really frustrated, which is, you know, typical of the natural disaster like this. our hearts go out to those folks, but it's tough for government to be able to respond. i don't know how it plays honestly. i know that right now if

a strong first debate he wasn't able to keep the momentum going. then came hurricane sandy that took the focus off romney in the final week of the campaign. romney had expected to win. earlier in the day he told reporters he had written only one speech, a victory speech. >> it's about 1,118 words, and i'm sure it will change before i'm finished because i haven't passed it around to my family and friends and advisers to get their reaction. >> reporter: but in the end he delivered a concession speech, lasting just five minutes. >> i so wish that i had been able to fulfill your hopes to lead the country in a different direction, but the nation chose another leader, and so ann and i join with you to earnestly pray for him and for this great nation. thank you and god bless america. >> reporter: you could see the sadness in romney as he gave that speech last night. it was a hard-fought campaign and as you said he didn't leave anything on the table. not only was it the end of the campaign after those 17 months on the campaign trail, it also is most likely the end of romney's political life,

before, but it's still an elevated level above 400,000 and you can thank superstorm sand sandy for that. sandy brought in all of these jobless claims and this is going to be something that's really going to wreak some havoc with the economic numbers over the next many months or so. you can expect these to continue to be in there affecting things like retail sales. as millions of americans are taking to the roads for the thanksgiving holiday, this is also a huge issue when it comes to car rentals. if you are in the northeast and you're planning on rent iing a r at the last minute, you'd better think again because sandy, again, has changed the fen phenomenon with that. so many people have had to rent cars because their own were damaged during the storm it has left rental car companies with a very short supply of cars they can hand out to other people. sandy, again, continues to have all these ripple effects on impacts on things like the numbers we watch every day. that's huge for the market. the other huge thing, luke, what happens next week when congressional leaders come back and we see
